CIT, Col­la­gen In­duc­tion Ther­apy is an anti-wrin­kle, anti-ag­ing or anti-blem­ish treat­ment with lit­tle down time and ex­tra­or­di­nary re­sults.

Also called der mal pen­ning, it is nat­u­ral skin re­ju­ve­na­tion re­sult­ing in in­creased pro­duc­tion of col­la­gen type III. New skin tis­sue is cre­ated be­low the sur­face, smooth­ing and tight­en­ing the tar­geted area. The re­sult is smooth er, more even toned skin. It even re­duces the ap­pear­ance of“smok­ers” lines around the mouth. With CIT, laugh lines are soft­ened and sur­face im­per­fec­tions are cor­rected. CIT pro­motes col­la­gen with­out com promis­ing the in­tegrity of the sur­face. The pen can pen­e­trate the skin any­where on the body& can be used for a wide range of ther­a­pies.

The ob­ject of CIT is to build connect ive tis­sue in the skin lay­ers while keep­ing in­tact the pro­tec­tive outer layer. Top­i­cal anes­thetic is ap­plied and a hand­held de­vice with a tip of small nee­dle clus­ters is used to pen­e­trate into the skin, break up old col­la­gen strands, and stim­u­late the pro­duc­tion ofe­lastin fibers.

Dur­ing the col­la­gen in­duc­tion process, the de­vice pen­e­trates through the epi­der­mis but does not re­move it. Since the epi­der­mis is only punc­tured, it heals rapidly. The pa­tient can im­me­di­ately re­turn to nor­mal ac­tiv­ity. Once the en­try ways are cre­ated, tar­geted cus­tom­ized serums are in­tro­duced to achieve the de­sired re­sults. A col­la­gen pro­duc­tion cy­cle takes up to 12 weeks thus, grad­ual im­prove­ment con­tin­ues for 3 months.

CIT re­sults are more dra­matic when they are done in a se­ries. When do­ing a se­ries, pa­tients plan to have 3 treat­ments, each about 4 weeks apart. The re­sults are per­ma­nent but ag­ing isa process that can not be stopped. Touch-up treat­ments ex­tend the re­sults of the se­ries and should be planned for every 8-12 m on ths.
